Double D was formed in 2002 by Patrick Dalton and Janette Duke. Patrick had been working in the building industry for over 30 years and Janette had a sound administrative and marketing background. Prior to forming the company Patrick had run a company supplying bricklayers to major house builders in the Hampshire area. 

A skilled bricklayer himself he had not only worked in the UK but also in Germany. When he suffered serious back problems he was forced to give up large scale projects and turn his skills to the domestic market. The ethos of Double D is simple - ensure that both the client and the builder know what their responsibilities are and ensure that the client gets a good job for a fair price. 

Communication and trust are paramount in any successful building project and we will always try to offer sound advice and bring experience to any project we are involved in. If you are looking for men in suits, then we are not for you. Patrick will often turn up to look at a job in his overalls and work truck - he is hands on at all stages of the project. 

We do not advertise and rely solely for continuity of work on reviews from past clients and recommendation - for over 15 years it has worked well and even through the recent recession we continued to have full books.
